OPTIMO PLAYLISTS




Due to overwhelming laziness (seriously, I can't believe the number of people from all around the world who have reminded me how lazy i am!), I will keep updating these playlists only when i can shake myself out of my torpor. Anyway, wouldn't you rather be watching Coronation Street or listening to Fela Kuti rather than checking out what atrocities were played last Sunday?
